Residents Encouraged to Register for CodeRED Notifications

Oct. 31, 2022 –CodeRED community notification registration is a system used to contact residents and businesses by phone to inform of certain events that may impact the safety of persons or protection of property.

Alerts are sent out to specific user locations. If an alert is sent out, only users in the specific alert area will receive the notification.

Text ‘AlertMortonND’ to 99411 or click here to sign up for the CodeRED notification system. Users may also download the CodeRED mobile alert app to indicate preferences for City of Mandan and Morton County CodeRED alerts. Messages will include emergency, general and missing person notifications to Mandan and Morton County residents.

In early October, CodeRED was used when a water main broke along the east end of Memorial Highway. Public Works Director Mitch Bitz was able to use CodeRED to send a notification to property owners in the area. This alerted subscribers about the break and plans for repair. While this may not be used for all water main breaks, it’s an example of use to inform residents of situations that can impact health, safety and personal property.

Here are a few reasons why users may have not received recent CodeRED notifications:

  • Resident is not signed up to receive CodeRED notification system alerts.
  • Resident’s contact information is not up to date.
  • House was not included in area of alert.
  • The CodeRED 1-866 phone number was mistaken for a telemarketer.
